    I LOVE my '13 2.0...but...

    Well, my '13 2.0 has been a great car and exceeded my expectations, especially in the fuel department.

    However, if the rumors of the '15 model offering not 1 but 2 hybrid models, Earth Dreams engines with direct injection and a better CVT or even a 7 speed DCT are correct....?

    I may have to trade it in!

    I'm expecting they will get the ILX to about 50 mpg or so.

    I can definitely deal with that.

    Anyone else feel the same?

    Nuff said.

    The money you'll lose trading it in will most likely outweigh the difference in gas costs.
    But if you're doing it because you're a tree huger or don't like filling up, then all the best too ya!

    We've been getting consistently low 30mpg since day one with out 2.4L and have zero issues. If we decide to trade it will be for a TLX or the RLX SH-AWD

    I hear you.

    I REALLY like the RLX. Despite what the magazines say, I find it to be a great car (I see no point in comparing it to a Mercedes or a BMW..that's just stupid).

    I could see myself owning one, just not as a daily commuter.

    I am waiting to see the TLX. If I like what I see, who knows?

    I'm not disappointed with the ILX, I just want to see what happens with the next model.

    If both the ILX and the TLX go full-hybrid (as opposed to "semi-hybrid" which is the case with the current ILX), then I may have a choice to make.

    Nuff said.
